6-29-14 Nothing But the Truth (a Sonnet)


The blood of Christ has washed away our sins

And with it all the need to hide and lie;

Now being one with Him in Truth begins

A Life that marks the Way we can’t deny.

The Holy Spirit fills us with the Word,

And so imbued an authenticity

That calls us to be truthful once conferred

In Spirit and in multiplicity.

We all are brothers now of one accord,

So when we speak deception to our kin

We do so to ourselves and to our Lord,

Marking us in shame unto this sin.

You know the truth and it has set you free.

With freedom comes responsibility.


Since you put away lying,

Speak the truth, each one to his neighbor,

because we are members of one another.

Ephesians 4:25
